IFQL: INFLUX FUNCTIONAL QUERY LANGUAGE – BRINGING DATA SCIENCE AND ANALYTICS INTO THE DATABASE
Introduction of the new query language that we’re building into InfluxDB and the InfluxData platform. Its design is functional and heavily inspired by projects like Pandas in Python and the Tidyverse projects in R. In addition to providing more complex query functionality, the language will facilitate more analytics and data science workloads within the database. Clustering on time series matrices, similarity metrics and k-nearest neighbors, forecasting models, and other data science tasks may become simple query operators within the query language. This talk will introduce the data model, some of the functions and walk through a working prototype implementation that showcases functionality unavailable in the language.
